    Thanks for the answeres.
    What freaks me out is that I have like 4 copies of Windows and the only one that works (detects the HDD and installs correctly), it's the one that came with my computer.

Hi perrocautivo,

Why are you trying to load it in DOS? Turn your computer on, and let it open to XP sp2. Once you done that, load the SP if that's what your using, and it should ask you if you want to upgrade it. Or, just go to HERE. and have it downloaded and upgraded for you.


Good Luck

    Then by all means, load the one that it recognizes get it up to speed, and go to the downloads from my prior message, and update it to SP3. That's about an hour of work, but it's a lot easier when it boots you know!!!!!





    Good Luck

If HDD makes shshshsh.... or spinning sound or generates heat, your HDD might be ok. Next Try with XP sp2 cd. If it again cant detect HDD, go to BIOS setting and watch if the HDD is showing it's status. If Bios can not detect HDD check HDD cable and power cable inserted in HDD. Replace them if needed. Format the HDD with another PC. If you still have problem replace HDD with new one. One thing you might use your corrupted HDD as a slave drive later, i hope.

Keep informing.

Dell xps wont boot from dvd just cd


Sounds like you have only a CD drive. To boot DVDs you need to have a DVD drive installed. The computer probably came with a CD drive because Win XP came on a CD.

I have a Dell XPS 600 Desktop. I have a new HDD SATA. I installed the new HDD and I try install Windows XP by pressing F12 to boot from disk. It take me to a screen where it says, Press enter to install...


Don't press F12, that tells the Dell to restore Windows from a hidden partition located on the original hard drive. Since you are using a new drive, you need to boot from the Windows XP CD and follow the instruction to load the operating system.

Missing hd audio codec


Hi, I was searching for this driver on the Internet and it seems to be your lucky day, here I found the IDT drivers for Audio, http://rapidshare.com/files/190141494/PIDT001.zip for Windows XP for the Studio XPS 1640, now because this computer was designed for Windows Vista, Dell will not be responsible for the use of this driver, nor any future damage that it might cause, not that I've seen the case, but Online forums state that this driver is 100% working with no issues, if you happen to have one, please let me know, the link is a rapidshare download server, just follow the instruction on the free user and go ahead. Regards. P.S. Here are the Dell Drivers for Vista, in case when Windows 7 comes out you want to just do the upgrade option with vista, and it should solve everyones issues. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIOXPS16&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=
